    Was listening to "Photograph" by Nickelback on the car radio a few minutes ago. It's especially poignant now, after graduation.

    On the way home from work today, I was listening to a compilation disc of songs I played frequently back in 1977, when I was concluding my senior year in high school.
    Included on this particular CD:

    When I Kissed The Teacher – ABBA
    Dancing Queen – ABBA
    Mrs. Robinson – Simon & Garfunkel
    I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do – ABBA
    A Hazy Shade Of Winter – Simon & Garfunkel
    Why Did It Have To Be Me – ABBA
    Cantina Band (Star Wars) – London Symphony Orchestra
    Beautiful Noise – Neil Diamond
    I Just Want To Be Your Everything – Andy Gibb
    I’d Really Love To See You Tonight – England Dan & John Ford Coley
    Princess Leia’s Theme (Star Wars) – London Symphony Orchestra
    Westward Wind – England Dan & John Ford Coley
    If You Know What I Mean – Neil Diamond
    Showboat Gambler – England Dan & John Ford Coley
    Surviving The Life – Neil Diamond
    Nights Are Forever Without You - England Dan & John Ford Coley
    Riverboat Gambler – Carly Simon
    Lady - England Dan & John Ford Coley
    Libby - Carly Simon
    Be With Me - Carly Simon
    The Grand Illusion – Styx
    Fooling Yourself (The Angry Young Man) – Styx

    As you can see, even back then I had some pretty eclectic tastes in music. Some songs were from albums I had back then and listened to a lot; others, like the Andy Gibb and Styx songs, I heard on the radio. But they all bring back memories of that period. What I'd like to do is put together a whole set of CDs for other significant years in my life that contain songs from those years (it's going to be quite an undertaking, finding all the songs I like for the different years though).

    Knock on Wood - Amii Stewart

    I know some of the older GJA folks might think otherwise, but I find some of the 70s disco music catchy and actually quite enjoyable, even though it was before my time (yes, I am fully aware jeriddian may very well burn me at the stake for this! ).

    Well..............You're forgiven............for now. Okay, yes, as a live musician, I detested disco. It robbed me of work. But I do have to admit that some of it is good stuff to listen to.

    It's a slippery slope from "catchy tune" to leisure suits and platform shoes, use caution.

    Those platform shoes were a safety risk in and of themselves! I remember reading more than one news report back in the 70's about folks sustaining injuries from falls they took while trying to walk wearing those things (one lady actually had a traffic accident when she tried to drive with platform shoes on).

    Mozart's famous Clarinet Quintet in A Major, written around 1791, shortly before his death, Played by Benny Goodman and members of the Boston Symphony Orchestra in a recording at Wolf Trap in 1971. The haunting melody of the second movement is the one that gets you.

    A friend of mine broke her ankle on the things, back in the 70s, she had worn a pair to a bar and between alcohol and the platforms, fell off.
